Breakup Boot Camp Redesign.png


After weeks of training to whip Joanna Kitt into shape for her big day, her picture-perfect engagement to her high school sweetheart is torn in two, and Joanna is left out on her perfectly toned rear end. To put the past and her heartache behind her, she sets off for two weeks at the renowned Retreat House Breakup Boot Camp in Topsail Island off the coast of North Carolina.

Despite her sadness, Joanna throws herself into the experience hoping surfing, yoga, spa treatments, meditation, and talk therapy will be enough to help her get over the one man she’s ever loved. But she soon learns the Boot Camp is only the first step to healing her broken heart. Joanna will have to come to terms with the career she abandoned, the losses in her life she never fully accepted, and the role she played in the ending of her relationship. .

When she meets Todd Aldrich, the handsome and mysterious hotel chef, she has the chance to take her renewed heart out for a test drive and see if she is ready for new beginnings and new love.

Will 12 steps be enough to get her life back on track? Or will her getaway to get over him prove healing the heart takes a whole lot more?

"Breakup Boot Camp was a fun, empowering read! My favorite part of this story was our main character, Joanna, because she felt relatable in many ways and I really loved seeing her development throughout the book. This is a story about losing your way only to find the path you were always meant to be on." - Kristy

"What a fun, well written story! I loved all of the healing antics at the boot camp - super clever, while also being really metaphorically significant. It was a lighthearted read, while still being smart and inspiring. I think everyone who reads it will find it relatable. Well done, Beth. I can't wait to read whatever you publish next!" - Laura
